"New" Furniture

I mentioned a couple posts ago that my dad and brother moved a piano into my house. It is new to my house but not new to me. This is the piano my family has had since my brother and I first started taking lessons in early elementary school. Many tunes have been played on these keys. I haven't played consistently over the last 7 years or so, but I still know one song from memory and can roughly read music. I'm excited to have the piano. It's always a nice way to relax for me and just escape for a few minute by playing. I also look forward to teaching our kids how to play someday. I mentioned before, the flat-top provide decorating possibilities :) Since our TV sits on top of our non-working fireplace and therefore we really don't have a mantle, the piano top will serve as my mantle.

This spot was perfect for a piano! Now my wall doesn't look so huge and bare.

First decor arrangement. Okay, but not great.

Rearranged the pictures to break up colors and heights, getting better.

Added some candles which I think was a perfect finishing touch. For now that will do it! Come Christmas time, I will probably re-decorate. :)
Any ideas for how I should decorate it? I am a rookie at decorating so very open to ideas and tips.
